Overview


Made up of tiny water droplets or ice crystals, and encasing our planet in a protective layer, clouds are an important part of Earth’s weather, and have inspired millions of hours of sky watching around the world.  

Clouds celebrates every aspect of clouds, including how they are formed, their different types, how they help predict the weather, and how they are transformed by geography, climate and the seasons. Offering a clear scientific explanation to classification and identification, the book will also include cloud myths and legends, quotes from world literature, and beautiful photographs of every kind of cloud, from Cumulonimbus to Stratus. It will also include the truly rare and amazing formations only recently identified, such as Asperitas and the Morning Glory roll cloud. 

Highly illustrated with directory photographs and beautiful skyscapes, this is a lay person’s guide to understanding, recognising and interpreting clouds, written by astronomer and meteorology expert Storm Dunlop.
